ABOUT THE GUILD
Because the Guild represents and is made up of individuals from disparate parts of the world, there is no 'general membership' meeting requirements either yearly or at any time. All Guild business and correspondence is undertaken online.
Administrative and bureaucratic tasks are undertaken by senior membership in accord with Ian White, the trademark owner of both terms, "Af-x®" and "Clinical Affectology™".
For the purpose of administration, senior membership refers to those practitioners who have achieved registered Af-x practitioner status OR operating as Clinical Affectologists and have been practicing and contributing to the wellbeing and advancement of Clinical Affectology and Af-x for a period exceeding ten (10) years.
The Guild operates under the direction of one commissioner drawn from General Membership. This may be, as in the current case, a person not involved in therapeutic activities, but vitally interested and a contributor to the wellbeing of the studies and training and practice of 'the human affect experience' paradigm.
_BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
General membership of the guild is cost-free. There are no financial commitments expected or solicited from members. Af-x Practitioners are required to contribute to monitoring costs (ESR) and minor overheads associated with website administration and general housekeeping within the Guild. As Af-x membership involves cost AND the Guild is able to determine performance of individual registered practitioners, there exists a degree of protection from the voice and collaborative informed (via monitoring) processes of the Guild and by Senior Members.
All Guild members, irrespective of status within categories receive a monthly Guild-sponsored eMagazine. Distribution and receipt of this eZine is not confined to Guild membership, but Guild members receive it by default of their membership.
